Placerville airplane broker accused of laundering money for drug runners


“The principal object of the conspiracy was to … increase sales of planes at Stancil Enterprises Inc. by obtaining business from apparently criminal elements who wished to purchase planes with currency while evading all cash transaction reporting requirements,” the complaint said.

…According to the government’s complaint, Stancil and Stancil Enterprises helped buyers parcel payments totaling more than $428,000 into 57 different transactions of $9,500 or less during 2008 and 2009.

Many of the payments were made to separate Stancil Enterprises bank accounts and were deposited in branches in several different cities, prosecutors said.

The customers were not named in the complaint, but a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office later said the buyers were involved in drug trafficking.
